Mellow Yellow

If I had to be perfectly honest - I would say (with hand on heart) I have never been a great lover of the colour yellow.

And I may of confessed that a couple of times here just how much I really do not get on with it.

Maybe it's my skin/hair colour and tone that just doesn't look right sat beside it.

Blondish with a golden hue - when I tan - teamed with yellow just makes me look like one big banana!

But recently I've been warming to it. Could it be my age?

Like the seven year itch or your taste buds changing ever so often - I read that last part somewhere.

Now I know your skin tone changes the older you get, but surely this couldn't change my attitudes and views on colours?

Well I am starting to warm to the colour yellow, but it has to be more of a mustard yellow rather then canary - I don't think that tone would ever suit me. And I'm only accessorising.

So yellow cons (tick) - yellow wellies (tick) - a yellow bag (tick) - not all teamed together at once may I add. Think yellow banana......again.

You may even notice that some of my tab titles are in a mustardy yellow.

Anyway. So here I am embracing the colour yellow. It may have nothing to do with all of the above and just be that grey and yellow go together rather nicely.

Not me might I add - being grey. The skies outside and the dill going to flower in my garden.

Also forget the smell - which is lovely in itself - even the honeysuckle is looking rather dashing out there at the moment.

Where are my lazy days of Summer?


ps. non of the pictures above have any relevance to my wardrobe.

pps. and I know - I need to give my camera lens a jolly good clean. So much rain recently is not good for ones camera. How posh do I sound?
